A fresh new season takes off in Splatoon 3

7 March 2024

What’s that soaring through the sky?! Is it a bird? A kite? Oh, wait—it’s a cephalopod?! That must mean the funky new Fresh Season 2024 has landed in the Splatoon 3 game!


Fresh Season 2024 includes:

  • New stage: Marlin Airport

  • New Salmon Run stage: Bonerattle Arena

  • Two new weapons: Douser Dualies FF & Recycled Brella 24 Mk I

  • New item: Fizzbang, a firework-launching item exclusive to Splatfests

  • New funky fresh tracks (ink-cluding one by a new band, Riot Act)

  • New seasonal catalog

  • Additional weapon variations and gear added to shops

  • And more!

This content is part of a free update. Your game may have automatically already updated itself, but you can double check by highlighting the game’s icon on the HOME Menu, pressing the + Button, and selecting Software Update (internet connection required).

So, what do you say? Are you ready to make a splash? Oh! Before you answer, we’ve got a bit more ink-formation for you…


Wrap your tentacles around the Expansion Pass!

Sling more ink in the Splatoon 3: Expansion Pass – Inkopolis & Side Order paid DLC*! From the return to Inkopolis Plaza to a new single-player campaign, you can enjoy a sea of ink-slinging action.

Side Order returns players to a VERY different Inkopolis Square, the central area from the Splatoon 2 game. With all the colour and citizens missing, you’ll have to battle your way through a new single-player campaign to find out what’s krilly going on.

Inkopolis Plaza (from the original Splatoon game) has changed a bit over the last few years, but Booyah Base still has it goin’ on. Meet the shopkeepers slingin’ fresh deals (Jelonzo, is that you, bud?!) and join super-popular duo the Squid Sisters during Splatfests**.

Phew! Splatoon 3 is sure serving up quite a bit of fun. If you’d like to purchase the game or the paid DLC, please visit the link below.

Good luck out there, squiddos!
